    The imaginary unicorn of unbiased news. Any ideas?

    Its been around at least a year, I stopped watching any news because I got tired of the anti/pro Trump BS.

    I'd just like to watch some news without the unfounded pro/con Trump news.

    Me too. We live in a polarized world of absolutes. Just seems we have forgotten the Golden rule of absolutes statements...they are usually constructed to sway judgement and conceal dishonesty.
    Some people are as useful as a football bat.

    This is pretty informative. I use apps for AP, USA Today and Reuters. AP is somewhat neutral but they do focus on Trump and use inflammatory headlines. All news agencies are selling news and America wants drama.
    I'm in, Let's go!

    Yup, news, like insurance, is a product for profit. It isn't altruistic. It isn't an information service. It sells clicks, commercials, likes, whatever. Just a product for profit.
